a couple days ago, i read a blog that was a reflection of the past 10 years in bullet format. i thought i would try it. we are sitting here in orlando with my sweet parents on new years eve (also my mom’s birthday!!) so it seems like a good time to look back. so much has happened. it is amazing to see how the lord has led my parents, me, as well as nick and how it all somehow has led to this.
-freshman in high school, playing jv basketball at cfca
-learned to play guitar and started leading worship at ascension.
-sophmore, made the big move to first academy. hard decision for me, but best decision…. met sweet friends katie schrimsher (anderson), lindsay sterchi (drake), and ashley.
-9/11- was in a classroom watching it all unfold on a tv… was totally surreal. they sent us home from school to be with our families. still unreal that it happened.
